Wilgus Hall

Welcome to Wilgus Hall

Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because it is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall.  Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area.  The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.

Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and partners with McGregor Hall to do the annual Luau, one of the first all-hall programs of the year. Wilgus Hall is also home to the Women's Wellness library and Interest Community.


From the Desk of the Resident Director

Hi Wilgus!

I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful summer weather! We are already prepping for your return and getting excited to meet all of the first year students who will be calling Wilgus home this fall semester. Here are somethings you should be thinking about as you prep for the next school year.

Thinking about Wilgus for next year? We would love to have you! Wilgus is a wonderful traditional hall with many unique qualities, including a kitchen on every floor, a large conference room that is great for programming, the Women's Wellness library, and a dynamic Interest Community.

Women’s Wellness Interest Community: The Women’s Wellness IC takes a holistic approach to the development of women on campus as they grow as individuals and leaders. Women in this community will explore areas that impact their overall wellness. Such areas include: Physical and Mental Health, Financial Literacy, and Intellectual Growth. Participants will be able to develop in a fun and safe environment, supported by other strong women. This IC is open to all women who are interested in personal and professional growth.

New Student Registration:  For all the new students coming to Platteville, make sure you are signing up for a New Student Registration (NSR) date. At NSR you will sign up for your fall courses and will have the opportunity to tour some of the different halls on campus. The official room placements will be sent out to students via e-mail in July. Thus, please make sure to be checking whichever e-mail is registered to keep an eye out for the room assignment.

Opening:  Wilgus Hall will reopen on September 3rd for new students (freshmen and transfer students), and September 4th for returning students.  If you are a returning student and wish to arrive on September 3rd, a small charge may apply for moving in early.  More information will come out toward the end of the summer.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at stonerm@uwplatt.edu.
